Living Space was created by community partners who came together to end homelessness in Timmins. Living Space aims to fill the gap by making services readily available to people at risk of or experiencing homelessness in our community. Living Space is both a strategic partnership as well as a physical space. The aim of the partnership is to end chronic homelessness in Timmins by 2025 through the re-alignment and coordination of services. These services are made available to the community through the physical location of Living Space. Living Space’s logo features the “gap” a symbol often used to tell others that “you are safe here”. Living Space is just that – a safe space for people to turn to.
